Many people consider Indian Civil Services as the toughest examination of the world and obviously of India. Well, I am not sure about it.

Civil Services Examination’s entire process takes minimum 21 months time to start preparing for preliminary examination till result declaration of the interview. Aspirants need to work hard to first complete the broad syllabus and study smartly. Practice plays the big role in success.

IIM interviews are entirely different from IAS/UPSC examination. IAS interview questions and answers are more descent in nature and candidates need to make it more formal but extremely effective during the interview.

Toughest Examination of the world debate

I consider IIT as one of the toughest examinations of the world/India as many questions seem to to be very hard to be solved by even experts and same questions are expected to be solved by young candidates in a time-bound manner. Though big number of IITians crack the Civil Services & IIMs but this is also true that there are many IITians who couldn’t make it to these two prestigious examinations.

Considering the fierce competition in both IIM & IAS/UPSC examination surely these are among the most competitive and toughest examinations to clear it finally, but individual questions asked in initial examinations are not very tough and could be solved by a good high school/higher secondary student.

Interview in both of these examinations plays a critical role to select the outstanding candidates and their response to asked interview questions is noteworthy for all aspirants.

I would consider these two examinations among the best leading competitive examinations of the world.

Note: Above mentioned Interview Questions & Answers are the part of candidates long interview. There is no specific pattern of awkward questions asked in interviews and such questions are very few in numbers but very decisive in terms of its impact on the entire interview & marks as such ‘out of box’ or witty response helps interviewer to understand the  character of the candidate to handle the pressure or uneasy situation in an effective manner.

In my opinion, any examination is crackable with your will, desire, dedication, devotion right approach/strategy to any of the exam you want to clear.
